The Player Design Team is pleased to give players a look at the primary themes of each Clan, as they are planned for the Celestial Edition arc. Today a look at the Unicorn Clan.
Outside of the Lion Paragons there is no military force so proud, so devoted and so honorable as the Unicorn’s Battle Maidens. They are an elite fighting force that conducts battle very differently than the rest of the clan. Their personal honor is their strength and can result in either military or honor victories. Their tactic is represented by reducing the opponent’s force through elaborate and disciplined cavalry maneuvers, whilst at every opportunity displaying courage, daring and honor.
Unicorn Battle Maidens can achieve victory through both Military and Honor.
Like the Commanders of other clans, the Unicorn Commanders are about improving and working with your troops., whether that be followers or personalities. Where the Unicorn set themselves apart though is their mastery of horses and tactical maneuvering. Many a foe has been caught unawares as the swift, powerful heavy cavalry units appear over the horizon, striking terror into their hearts. Unicorn Commanders are masters of maneuvering and utilizing cavalry to destroy enemy formations.
Unicorn Commander’s main focus for victory will be listening to the screams of their opponents as they are trampled beneath their horse’s hooves.
The Unicorn clan have always been explorers and for many centuries their horsemen scattered beyond the empire and discovered new lands. The skills developed by these explorers have allowed the Unicorn to develop elite scouting units as part of their cavalry. Like all Scouts, the Unicorn Scouts are fast and agile. They rely on their knowledge of the land to make seemingly impossible victories look like a stroll in the stables. Where Unicorn scouts separate themselves from other clans is the way in which they use their master horsemanship to maneuver around the enemies forces, striking when and where it is most advantageous. Unicorn Scouts get their strength from maneuverability and overwhelming their opponents.
Unicorn Scout’s main focus for victory will be Military.
While the Lion may be the masters of Tactical warfare in the empire, they are not the only Tacticians out there. The Unicorn clan also has a strong contingent of Tacticians, and they too are masters of warfare. Like the Lion, Unicorn tacticians excel at making the right moves at the right time. Unlike the Lion, they apply their tactical brilliance to cavalry maneuvers and deployment. This combination of superb planning and the speed of their troops can unleash a devastating impact on less prepared opponents.
Unicorn’s Tacticians main focus for victory will be Military.
